PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING
For this review I'll be using the Evga 7800 GT-CO.
The first order of business is to remove the OEM cooling solution and clean the chips with alcohol. With the necessary components at hand, we can begin installation.
The ramsinks are a simple peel-and-stick operation and must be installed first. After applying a thin coat of Arctic Silver 5 to the GPU, the screws are tightened onto the mounting plate with the included wrench.
The card can then be flipped over and lowered onto the screws. The bottom of the backing plate gets some rubber cushioning washers and is then secured to the card with the springs and nuts. These can then be tightened down in a clockwise direction until they bottom.
